Microsoft Hello for Business: What is your opinion?



  • So the boss and I are kicking around the idea of implementing Microsoft Hello for Business and potentially getting rid of passwords altogether. We have the required software and infrastructure, or it could be easily implemented as it requires at least 2008R2 Domain and 2016 Schema. We utilize O365, so hybrid implementation would be our strategy. Most of the PCs on the network are Windows 10 (hopefully past 1709). So, implementation doesn't seem too far off. Something that I could get done by the end of the year.

    But, I want to know what your opinion of the technology in the workplace. Is it solid? What weaknesses or problems does it have? More complexity for not much more benefit?

    @scottalanmiller Can you add some tags for "Microsoft Hello", "Microsoft Hello for Business", and "MHfB"?



  • Added



  • Does it work with Azure AD free?

    Not sure. If you purchase O365 licensing, then you get a very skimped down version of Azure AD. So, yes?



  • @nerdydad - Yes, you do get a skimped down version of Azure AD with the O365 license. The prerequisites mention using Azure AD, but don't say which one, except where they say that the Premium version is optional for auto enrollment with intune. Although, they have several plans/tiers, including 2 premium tiers.
